Surgical Concern!
Surgical Indication?  I had a recent MRI that show C5-6 broad-based right posterior central disc protusion extending 3 mm beyond the endplate margins with right ventral cord flattening and mild attenuation of the thecal sac on the right, 8 mm AP.  And, mild to moderate right and mild left neural foraminal stenosis, predominantly due to uncinate hypertrophy; mild facet arthropathy noted.  My Right arm burns along the Radial Nerve and I have noticed some atrophy of the Supra and Infraspinatus muscles.  And oddly enough, I am having difficulty swallowing.  Does this present as a surgical consideration or would there be another option..?  Does the swallowing problem have any relation?

  Hi...if ur issue goes down to the vertabre C6 that is the nerve root C7 and it includes the esophagus....so I would imagine some swallowing issues may present....here is a link to the chart -http://www.medhelp.org/user_photos/show/229729?personal_page_id=197028&photo_collection_id=20895

As for if this is a surgical issue, u would need to consult with ur Dr...we r not medical professionals here,as this is a support forum...I hope this info helps u.
